An infographic of a statement by former Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister and BJP leader Uma Bharti is going viral on social media. In this poster, Uma Bharti can be seen praising former Congress President Rahul Gandhi. The text in this graphical poster reads – “Rahul Gandhi would make a very good PM if given a chance – Uma Bharti, BJP”
Sharing this post, a user named Kareena Kapoor Khan (@kareena_kpn) wrote – “Now there are voices from BJP too. Next Prime Minister Rahul Gandhi.”(Tranlated into English). This post has got more than 5 thousand likes and more than 1200 retweets.
The viral infographic was investigated by the team of DFRAC. Our team first searched some keywords on Google in the context of Uma Bharti’s statement. We could not find any news published by any credible media house regarding the statement of Uma Bharti.
At the same time, our team checked the social media profile of Uma Bharti in the context of her statement. There too, no such statement given by Uma Bharti in the recent past was found.
It is clear from DFRAC’s fact check that BJP leader Uma Bharti has not made any statement regarding Rahul Gandhi being a better Prime Minister. Hence the claim being made by social media user is false.
